On Saturday we went to the Camas Widlife refuge. Its about 35 miles fromwhere I live. A nice short drive. The newspapoer had an article about it. We'd never been there so we thought we'd check it out. They had viewed 40 eagles the other day so we hoped we'd get see at least a few. We ended up seeing a coyote, 2 porcupines, one was sleeping in a tree and the other just walking. There was a bull moose with a very nice looking rack and 2 cow moose. We saw lots of hawks, they were mostly northern harriers. The eagles were the best though. We must have seen 25 of them, both Golden's and Bald Eagles. We were in a stand of Cottonwood trees where they come to roost. They were flying right over our heads one after another. I really realized why a golden eagle is called golden. When the sun hit their breasts they truly looked gold. They were beautiful. It really was a special moment.
This is a golden eagle that sat in a tree pretty close to us. He was quite spectacular. It was a beautiful day, blue skies and sunshine. When you saw them flying over head their breast really did look like gold.
Here are a few shot of bald eagles, they are so far away so the pictures are not that great.
If you look down the center of the path you'll see a brown spot, well that was the coyote. He didn't want to come any closer.
